Build Your Own

to Fix any Problems?
E book You Can!
My name is David Robertson and I have been
for over 20 years now. In this time I have made numerous blacksmith gas forges and I am
always tinkering with the design, trying
economics and ease of construction.
In 2006 I recorded my Gas Forge
Construction dvd . This
dvd gives detailed construction of an
atmospheric pipe propane gas forge. An atmospheric forge requires no
electricity and relies on a venturi effect to properly mix the propane
and the air. Since 2006 I have shipped many DVD's around the world.
I always felt a little awkward learning from video. For some things
such as seeing and hearing hammering techniques it is very valuable,
but I also see the benefit in having a manual or a set of gas forge
plans that I
can print off pages and refer to.
So now I have written The
Gas Forge Construction Manual. This
downloadable ebook details step by step gas forge plans for
construction of two propane gas forges for blacksmiths and knifemakers.
The first is the atmospheric pipe forge described in the original DVD.
second is a blower driven box forge with a radically different
a Blacksmith Forge
propane forges described are both suitable for blacksmithing work. As a
blacksmith gas forge the atmospheric forge is a good starter gas forge.
Interior size is 12 inches long and 6 inches wide 6 inches high. You
can do a lot of heating of metal in this size of space but you do get
creative in figuring out how to put odd shaped steel in the forge
The blower box propane gas forge is more versatile, but a little less
thermally efficient. I use a prototype of this style of forge as my
main production gas forge. It allows me to open the side and put a very
complex shaped bar in for heating. This versatility is what attracted
to the design.
a Knifemakers Forge
pipe forge works very well as a knifemakers forge as you are making
long straight shapes. The extra insulation also makes it easier to gas
forge weld in.
The Blower Box forge can be used for knifemaking as well. You will be
able to forge weld in it as well but you must be more skilled at forge
welding in this style of forge. It will take practice.

It really is my primary heat source, oh yes the gas forge also helps to
heat the shop in the winter!
| What one
of my customers had to say.
ago I purchased your book on building a gas forge. We then
exchanged emails about what modifications I should make because I live
at 4000 feet altitude.
Enclosed are two pictures of the forge I built with the air blower
burner. I am a blacksmith at the California Empire Mine State
Park. I also receive your newsletters.
Thank you for a very detailed plan that successfully led me through
building a forge. The forge works well at my altitude with
the blower. I made both burners and find that the air blower
makes a big difference. Thank you again for your help. I
enjoy your educational videos and look forward to seeing more of them
in the future.

p.s. I have been using variations of these forges for over 10 years now
and have had great success with them. Relatively easy to build
with minimal skills of welding, drilling and cutting steel. Low cost
with all the parts costing about $200.00 new. If you are good at
scroungeing cost can be much less.
